The HTC One M8s is essentially a refresh of last year’s HTC One M8.Outwardly,the HTC One M8s looks very much like the base HTC One M8 with almost the same dimension,same 5-inch 1080p screen as well as an all-metal body.Been a budget smartphone,HTC has made some internal changes that allow it to release the HTC One M8s for quite a bit less than the HTC ONE M8.

Major changes made to the HTC ONE M8S includes; a change in the camera setup-the new HTC One M8s opted for a more convetional 13-megapixel rear camera sensor, in place of the 4-UltraPixel setup while the front camera still retained its 5MP set up.
The biggest trade off is the downgraded processor.While the Flagship HTC One M8 features a very powerful 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 CPU,HTC only managed to fit the HTC One M8s with a less capable 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz.There is a 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage.
The device boots Android Lollipop out-of-the-box with Sense 6 and integrates BoomSound dual front-facing speakers that promise (and typically deliver) loud, clear audio. Battery capacty on the new HTC One M8s is even more encouraging as it comes with a slightly higher 2840 mAh battery compare to the 2600mAh battery of the Flagship HTC One M8.
